In better light, this was the Division II 3200 meter run.

For sports, the 7D is the way to go...
Agree with this, especially if you're after FPS.
However, for better low light (high ISO) performance a 5D2 would be better, but you don't get the FPS. Depends on your priorities. Decisions, decisions!
with 5D III you can do both sports(6fps) + night photography. Yes - little pricy
Also, I quickly snapped the shot after I put my flash on, with a 35mm at f/1.4 because I didn't care. It's a joke. Does that clear things up for you? I'm sorry you're having a bad day.I don't want to ruin your day, but you might also check your flash, it seems a little dark.
I hate to say it, bdunbar79, but your lens seems a little soft and you should do some AFMA. Also you're not OP and it isn't an 1Dx.
I just tried to sell my 1v on eBay with both motor drives and 207 rolls exposed for $600.00 and it didn't sell! Had 8 watchers and 11 bids but none met my reserve of $600.00. I'll try again soon....just never know with eBay
canon 70-200mm great len you will love itWhich version?
Hmm good point, shouldn't we be comparing the 1DX to the D4 instead of the D800?
Interesting. Do you shoot at 24mm a lot? If you don't shoot at 24mm a whole lot, I'd suggest something that will surprise you. With your current kit I'd personally buy the 24-105L zoom lens. Then you can shoot wherever you want from 24 to 105mm whenever you want. If you really want a wider angle prime though, the 24L is really good.
Yes, surprising recommendation. I might consider the 24-70 f2.8 II as it would effectively replace what the 16-35 provided on my 40D, but I really do not like the barrel extension on lenses like the 24-70 or the 24-105.
Note: I also had the EFS 10-22 with the 40D, enjoyed it for awhile, but then rarely used it in place if the 16-35 (too wide).
Canon can't change the image sensor format of a new 7D from APS-C to APS-H or FF and still maintain the product title "7D". If anything the 7D name would be eliminated and a new name will be used.
I had been thinking about upgrading to a 5D mkIII from my 550D but it's a little out of my price range even body only. So I figured I'd look at the 7D as a few of my colleagues have it and love it. I can get it for £870 delivered body only, however just a couple of things from me pushing the "checkout" button on the site.
I do a lot of night time, night time HDR, panoramic photography and just wondered if the 7D would be up to the job for this. I often do long exposures, in a few shots i've done 20-30 minute exposures on a beach at night and while the 550D was good it wasn't quite perfect, so I wouldn't want to upgrade and lose that performance i have currently.
The one area where I know it will help is my sports photography. I shoot most sports, football, rugby, golf, motor racing, aqua sports (kite surfing, jet skiing, motor boat races)..So I'm 100% it will fulfill it's purpose on that front.
Was just wondering about the low light. These are my 3 main lenses...
Sigma 10-20mm f3.5
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0 L
Canon EF 70-200mm F/4.0 L IS
Anyone using a 7D who maybe can advise?
